Structural Heart and Valve Disease
The Structural Heart and Valve Disease Program provides expert care to patients with advanced, complex structural heart disease. A multidisciplinary team of specialists representing cardiology, interventional cardiology, cardiac surgery, cardiovascular imaging and cardiac anesthesia, provide collaborative care.
The program specializes in minimally invasive treatments for patients who do not qualify for conventional open procedures. Although open-heart surgery remains the preferred method for treating structural heart disease, interventional cardiology provides a viable alternative for patients considered too risky, offering benefits like less scarring, blood loss and pain, and quicker recovery.
This vast diversity of medical expertise under one roof enables our team to efficiently evaluate and collaborate closely to develop a specialized treatment plan, continuously working together to provide informed, effective care. This clinical expertise is further enhanced by access to the best medical technology, including an advanced hybrid operating room.
The program is largely referral-based, so seamless communication between our providers and referring physicians remains critical and is greatly emphasized.
Conditions we treat include:
Signature components of the program include transcatheter valve replacement (TAVR).
